This mansion in Weston, West Virginia, was built for Jonathan M. Bennett in 1875 and passed to the ownership of his son, Louis Bennet. It remained the Bennett family home until donated to Lewis County by Sallie Maxwell Bennett in 1922 for use as a library and community centre in memory of her husband and son, Lieutenant Louis Bennett Jr.
